Mission
The Corporate Volunteer Council (CVC) of Greater Tulsa believes volunteerism is essential to the well-being of the community.  We believe it is good business to evaluate volunteer needs in the community and match corporate volunteer resources to meet those needs.  Volunteerism is one of the foundations of corporate social responsibility, and corporate social responsibility is one of the foundations of being a good corporate citizen.

The Corporate Volunteer Council's mission is to promote and foster corporate volunteerism primarily through the sharing of ideas and information on corporate volunteer programs and issues of community concern, which may be addressed through volunteerism.

Purpose & History
The Corporate Volunteer Council is a professional organization composed of a group of Tulsa-based companies that meets monthly to share ideas on how to promote employee volunteerism in the corporate sector.  CVC serves as a communications vehicle among member companies and the non-profit sector using corporate volunteers.

Tulsa's Council was the 17th CVC to be organized in the United States.  It began in 1984 with the assistance of the Tulsa Volunteer Center
